Advice on condensation in the home

Removing mould

If you already have a small amount of mould in your home, you will have to use a fungicidal cleaner.

You can also manage or avoid mould by:

  • Wiping down the inside of windows if they become wet with condensation
  • Not placing beds, wardrobes or other large furniture against outside walls
  • Not overfilling wardrobes and cupboards, as this stops the air circulating
  • Redecorating bathrooms and kitchens using a specialised paint
  • Not using ordinary paint or wallpaper on walls or ceilings that have been decorated using fungicidal paint
  • Reporting to us any repairs to extractor fans and heating systems
